What if we met at QuakeCon? (2022)
Dual channel simulation
What if we met at QuakeCon? is a simulation following two AI characters. Each character’s situation is presented side by side on vertically oriented displays. Similarly, they are both confined to their ambiguous basement-like living spaces, littered with food packaging. The characters are trapped within a mundane cycle of consumption – going between drinking energy drinks, eating leftover junk food, playing video games and pacing around aimlessly in an attempt to seek fulfilment. This project is a continuation of a body of work looking at isolation within networked technologies and is based on the sentiment to "feel alone together" within 4chan culture.
